Re: Financial Magazines

You don't read The Economist, you study it.

It is not the magazine for the masses, no get rich schemes, just illustrating things as the are and pointing out things that may be.

Re: Financial Magazines

We get the Economist and consider it to be a bit to the right fiscally, but I think it is just mostly the facts and how they relate to history, etc. I like it a lot. I recently passed up the opportunity to get Smart Money for free, just too many magazines (and anyone who knows the Economist knows that it takes a while to read!)

Re: Financial Magazines

I always thought the Economist was more than a little to the left. I think that was because I kept finding opinions that I agreed with. I haven't read it for a couple of years. I've been actively avoiding news, politics, and religion. It's amazing how much still gets through when you avoid them.

News avoidance is a good stress lowering technique!

Its funny what you say about thinking the Economist to the left because you agreed with it because I agree with it a lot too and I'm politically to the left. Its just that during the election they did not support Bush only because of all the debts, etc. they said "with a heavy heart" they endorse Kerry. So... who knows. Maybe its hard to identify because they don't have an agenda, that's refreshing in itself!
